A song for Lansley and his Pals

So the Health and Social Care Bill has reached the Report Stage in the House of Lords and it’s taken a beating already!

The Coalition Government have lost the first vote and it’s a sign of things to come. The amendment that was passed creates a duty for the health secretary to promote a health service that deals with “mental and physical illness”, rather then the original draft of just “illness”.

More professional organisations have come out against the Bill such as the Faculty of Public Health and the Community Practitioners and Health Visitors Organisation, and Labour has started to up its game. Cameron was seriously mauled by Ed Miliband in PMQs and have even taken to smearing Dr Gerada, President of the RCGP in an attempt to discredit those who are fighting hard to Save the NHS.

And, Eoin Clarke has helped to leak the Risk Register for London which will prove to be a treasure trove of ammo against the Bill. More on this soon…

There is a demo on 7th March in London where there will be plenty of people singing this song (the You Tube video below) so make sure you learn the words!

    It looks like you’re too afraid of what’s in the risk register to want to publish it ! But we demand to know its contents.
    We value the NHS far too much to expose it to risks.

    So withdraw the Bill! Look at the impressive list of professionals who DO NOT want it, and what huge numbers pf the puiblic don’t want it either !
